You Know You Visit Chat Too Much When...

I love how unintentionally misleading that title is.

Anyway;
- You often use :< or :> in your messages.
- You see a suckup and immediately picture them with an @ beside their name.
- The first thing you do when you start up the computer is open mIRC.
- You often use linebreaks just to insert a smilie.
- You see a funny post and want to make it an autogreet.
- You begin typing /me when you want to refer to yourself.

Mm, that's all I've come up with. Append, people! >O

This isn't trivia, nor is it a game.

This belongs in Fun Time in Pokeland, seeing as it is indeed a game.

It's a list of things that common chatters do. God, people.

Well, I'm a compulsive chatter and I'll go in at 1am for a couple of minutes and end up staying until 5...

Soon enough, the entire community will be under our control. There is no escape, just give in.

Actually... the last time a thread like this was made, it was indeed moved from Funtime into OC, so that's why I've left it in here...

YOUR ways? Piffle. I wrote the book on chat addiction long before you started using the Internet.

Except I've been using the internet since '02, and the chat has only been around since November.

Ha!

Ooo, what fun. D:

- If you raise your hand in class and say BRB/BBW/BBIAB(etc)
- If the word I is almost always replaced with /me
- When you write a -paper- letter and find it hard to do without using smilies
- You can keep up with several conversations at one time
- You often find yourself involved in chan politics
- When someone -irl- says "what'd you say?" and you reply "scroll up"
- When you know more than ten different ways to smile in ascii

That's all for now, my creative juices seem to have run dry. :<
